Ciego de Ávila

Most people simply pass through this provincial capital on the way to resorts in Cayo Coco or Cayo Guillermo. This is an ordinary, torrid city of 100,000—en route to Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo to the north, Camagüey to the east, or the port of Júcaro to the south. Founded in the 16th century, Ciego de Ávila didn't grow much till the early part of 20th century, which is when most of its historic structures were built.
